The World’s Largest Solar Telescope Has Captured The Most Detailed Image Of A Sunspot

Scientists have released the most stunning and detailed image of a sunspot humanity has ever seen.

Thomas Rimmele, associate director of the National Solar Observatory (Nso), said the image, taken by the Inouye Solar Telescope on January 28, showed magnetic structures as small as 20 kilometers on the sun’s surface, the U.S. National Science Foundation said in a statement. The solar telescope is the largest telescope dedicated to observing the sun. The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is the agency that built the telescope that captured this image.

The image of this sunspot shows only a small 16,100-kilometer section of the sun, but this size is large enough that the Earth can easily fit inside it. When you look at the sunspot, you will notice a dark center that appears to have taken on a brighter appearance from the outside.
